Elegy

By E.D. Blodgett
Photographs by Yukiko Onley
A lament in light. A breath-taking memorial. Poetry and photography that compose the landscapes of remembrance. Once I saw your breath suspended in the air then I understood how fire could be white when I exhaled my breath followed yours into the sky that holds us both "Rich, profound, engaging, and written with an emotional depth rarely seen in much of contemporary poetry. There's a meditative virtuosity throughout this work, original and perceptive, alive with intelligence and compassion." Don Domanski
